Expect the unexpected when you encounter Jan Phillips
"Expect the unexpected when you encounter Jan Phillips....Her varied skills, life experiences, and insights provides a foundation for creative change. She is a master at listening to what you say, speaking her truth. This in turn guides you to your truth, sometimes in unexpected ways! Her sense of knowing, her humor, her photography and song, are gifts she willingly shares. The information I learned and the modeling I witnessed in her workshop has propelled me to reclaim my creative self, to share my wisdom, and to have fun in the process!"

I highly recommend Jan Phillips
"Jan was the keynote speaker at our annual convention and I was absolutely captivated with her presentation. Being in a profession that is all about the nuts and bolts of testing, evaluating and meeting governmental guidelines, Jan inspired the audience with her inspirational words and ideas. She made great use of stories to illustrate her points and engage the audience in her ideas. She challenged us to create an image of what we want to accomplish and that image itself becomes motivating on its own. Her ideas on creating balance in our life utilizing the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual sides of ourselves was just the sort of speech that we needed to get our convention off to a rousing start. It was both educational to the mind and nourishing to the soul. I highly recommend Jan Phillips as a speaker for your organization's event."

What a great workshop
"I was a participant in the recent workshop that you presented for the Dominican Sisters in Columbus, OH. What a great workshop.

I hope that you felt as affirmed as we did as a result of your workshop."

I feel free enough to dance and sing and praise God
"Dearest Sister of my soul Jan, The cover of your book Marry Your Muse says it all—that’s exactly how I feel after your wonderful retreat. I feel free enough to dance and sing and praise God in my own little way. I can never thank God enough for you! I really feel joyful and I thank you for that and for all I’ll still get out of the best retreat I’ve made in 79 years."

Jan Phillips gave me food and fire for my passion like I’ve never had before.
"In one weekend, Jan Phillips gave me food and fire for my passion like I’ve never had before. I see real and viable ways to change my work and live closer to the life I want. I am transformed, enlivened and profoundly hopeful. I will be making my income in a different way than I was before this seminar. My spirit, heart and brain kept firing all weekend giving me confidence and content for groups and presentations. I also have the know-how now to market and bring my gifts to the people who need what I teach. To anyone considering this workshop: Don’t wait! You can get started NOW to get your new life launched."
